Claydon Drills has appointed J. Wood & Son (Bilsdale Ploughs) Ltd in Kirbymoorside to handle the comprehensive range of Claydon crop establishment products throughout North East Yorkshire.
The addition of the Claydon range, which has been perfected on farms in 26 countries, across all conditions, soil types and crops, represents the latest development in the history of J. Wood & Son, which was founded in 1874 by John Wood at Fangdale Beck, Bilsdale. Still an independent machinery dealership with its roots firmly in the area, the business operates throughout the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire and is a main dealer for the world-renowned Case IH farm equipment range.
J. Wood & Son sales manager, Dale Lawson stated: “We are delighted to have been appointed to represent Claydon, which is at the forefront of crop establishment technology and produces a range of equipment which is highly regarded by innovative farmers. This is an exciting addition to our product portfolio and we look forward to a successful partnership with the Claydon team.
“We are keen to offer farmers access to the latest, most cost-effective methods of farming to reduce their costs and maximise profitability. Having recently taken delivery of a 3m Claydon Hybrid drill and 7.5m Claydon straw harrow we are able to demonstrate the benefits of the Claydon System to farmers, estates and contractors who operate across a wide range of soils types and are looking to significantly reduce their crop establishment costs, improve timeliness and maximise yields.”
Claydon UK sales manager, Charlie Eaton for Claydon, adds: “With agricultural commodity markets becoming increasingly volatile, crop returns less predictable and profitability under severe pressure progressive farmers understand that to remain competitive in an increasingly global marketplace they have to adopt new methods which are more cost effective, time efficient, financially and environmentally sustainable and which deliver significant agronomic benefits.
“What makes Claydon products unique is the fact that they have been developed by Jeff Claydon, a working farmer in Suffolk, and have been proven in a real farming environment. The Claydon System is now used by progressive farmers throughout the world, who rely on it to enhance crop performance and make their businesses more sustainable.”
